How To Use USB OTG Flash Drive on iPhone and iPad:
It is tough to manage storage on your smartphone. Especially when your smartphone doesn’t support micro sd card. Nowadays maximum smartphone manufacturers follow the Apple way by not allowing external micro sd card support to their smartphones. But, as our title says we can use USB OTG Flash Drive on Both Android and iOS to increase their storage.There are many uses of USB OTG. In this article, you will come to know How To Use USB OTG Flash Drive on iPhone and iPad. So, let’s understand how.
Use USB Flash Drive on iOS Device: [Requires Jailbreak]
Unlike Android, it is not easy to use external USB flash drive on iPhone and iPad. For using external USB Flash Drive, you have to jailbreak your iOS Device and install iFile from Cydia.
So, we will have to buy Lightning To USB Camera Adaptor to connect your iPad and iPhone to Flash Drive; this is same as we do with Android devices. Now, attach lightning to USB cable by inserting the lightning end of the cable into your iPad or iPhone, and other ends connect with USB flash drive. Make sure your flash drive is in FAT32 Format. If you want to use external HDD, then you will need some extra power. You can generate it by using the USB powered hub. Now open iFile and you should be able to excess your flash drive on iPhone or iPad.
We are sorry to mention that as we don’t have jailbroken iOS device, this method is not tested. But, it is checked by one of the best sources online, and according to that source, it works pretty fine. But frankly, I recommend don’t jailbreak just to connect the USB flash drive.
